Grad Student Writing Workshops

Our workshops for graduate students are 3-hour, interactive sessions that combine content delivery, discussion, and interacting with writing through reading and practice. 

Rather than treat our facilitators as “experts” and participants as “students,” our graduate student workshops focus on generating collective expertise in the room, together. During your workshop, you can expect to be engaged in the process of discovering generalizable writing principles connected to the workshop topic.

Our aims for each of our grad student workshops are:

  • That you leave knowing something you didn't know before
  • That you leave feeling more empowered and positive about the writing process going forward

See our current grad workshop calendar here!


Past workshops have explored topics such as: 

  • Personal Statements/Statements of Purpose
  • Writing an Effective Cover Letter
  • Academic Job Market Statements
  • Telling a Research Story
  • Writing with Scholarly Voice
  • The Dissertation Proposal/Prospectus
  • And more!
